First release of AppScripting, a new OSA module, is available for
your pleasure and amusement:
Unstuff the AppScripting folder and drop it into MacPython's
tell application "TextEdit"
set size of character 1 of every word of text of document 1 to 24
textedit = AppScripting.app('/Applications/TextEdit.app')
Documentation's still to do, but you should get a decent idea of how
it works from the bundled EXAMPLES.py file.
The front end is fairly complete, though there's still quite a bit to
- 'whose' filter and '<reference> thru <reference>' range reference forms
- proper system for specifying target applications (currently
requires full path to application and is reliant on creator codes so
won't work with all apps, eg Address Book)
- support required suite events for non-scriptable apps (currently
choke on apps without aetes)
- more support for OSA's plethora of weird and wonderful types
- streamline aete reader
- anything else.
Anyone wants to help out, would be appreciated.
